We support entrepreneurs who challenge the status quo, put skin in the game to build international leaders. We look at the following dimensions:
- Geographic focus: We focus on helping companies in Europe and South East Asia (Focus on Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia). We want to add value to your business and believe the only way we can really do that is by being close to you.
- Investment focus: We prefer to invest as the first institutional investor after the seed round, when there is proof of concept and there are some revenues. Our investments range from EUR 250,000 to EUR 15 million over the lifetime of the company, which typically represents a minority stake.
- Sector focus: We focus on tech companies that are relevant for the FinTech growth. We are currently focusing on 6 themes:
- Retirement and Wealth Management Solutions
- Disruptive Insurance distribution and underwriter plays
- Alternative Lending and Deposits products
- Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
- Security (e.g. KYC, fraud, etc.)
- Mid and Back office cost game changers for Financial Institutions
Finally, you should know that we will not invest in companies that compete with business in our portfolio and that do not have a stellar reputation given the importance of trust in financial services.
